How MUCH SUGAR IS REALLY IN THE SODA? by:trinity harris mrs.zachery
The purpose of my project is to find
out how much sugar is really in a 2 liter soda and to compare it to the amount that the manufacturer indicates on the label.
Independent Variable- Brand of soda

Dependent variable- amount of sugar in soda.
1. I remove the carbon dioxide from the soda.

2. I create my sugar solutions.
3. I test the sugar solutions
4. I test the soda.
5. Take or record the data.
6. Lastly, repeat the steps two more times
How much sugar is really in a 2 liter Mountain Dew, A&W root beer , Strawberry, Pepsi, 7Up, and Hawaiian Punch bottle.
I predict that there will be more sugar in the soda than is on the soda label.
Repeat my experiment
2 more times.
Pour the soda from the bottles
into the measuring container. Pour the
soda back into the bottle. Repeat this step
five times.
Removing carbon dioxide
Create Sugar solutions
Label all six 2 liter bottles: 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25%. Then put 200g of sugar in 10% bottle,300g of sugar in the 15% bottle, in the 20% bottle put 400g of sugar, and in the 25% bottle put 500g of sugar.
Insert the hydrometer into the 0% sugar solution.
Record the value on the hydrometer scale in
the lab notebook.
Remove the hydrometer, rinse, and dry it.
Repeat this step for each (5%, 10%, 15%, 20%,
and 25%) sugar solution.
Test Sugar solution
Place the hydrometer in the soda.
Record the value on the hydrometer scale in your
lab notebook. Then remove the hydrometer, rinse,
and dry it.
Test the soda
Create Sugar Solutions
1. Label the six empty 2-L containers with masking tape and the permanent marker, as follows:
a. 0% sugar
b. 5% sugar
c. 10% sugar
d. 15% sugar
e. 20% sugar
f. 25% sugar
2. Zero scale out to subtract the weight of the measuring cup

Create Sugar Solutions Con't
3. Weigh out 100 grams (g) of sugar on the kitchen scale and put it into the bottle labeled "5% sugar."
4. Weigh out the following amounts of sugar and pour it into the corresponding container:
a. 10% sugar bottle: 200 g of sugar
b. 15% sugar bottle: 300 g of sugar
c. 20% sugar bottle: 400 g of sugar
d. 25% sugar bottle: 500 g of sugar
5. Add 2,000 mL of water to each 2-L bottle.
6. Put the caps on the bottles and shake to mix them, until all of the sugar is dissolved.

Soda has a large amount of
sugar. The carbonated sodas
had at least 10% sugar.
The labels on most
sodas are accurate.
1. Hydrometer 0-35 degrees
2. Non-diet soda 2 liter plastic bottle (6)
3. Measuring container 2 liter
4. Funnel
5. Plastic bottles 2 liter empty and with 6 bottle caps
6. Masking tape
7. Permanent marker
8. Sugar (pure, white, granulated, and 5 pounds)
9. Lab notebook
10.Kitchen scale
11. Tap water
12. Graph paper
